Dreading Affection

In a blink of an eye

Reluctantly yet invisibly 

Was it that a phantom’s touch consumed me?

My body couldn’t take it anymore

The cold sweat tickled down my wretched face

“We don’t have to welcome death so early” 

said the voice from my slate veins,

At that point leaving it’s pox on my neck and it’s chicken in my head.

Pain embraced me

But I didn’t 

So I was suffering the consequences 

The bitter sunlight disrupts my sleep 

accompanied by the mean earlybirds,

I’m sweating while uttering those empty words to me

as my throat clenched and my eyes dilated,

“I need you” dreadingly

Somewhere in the midst of another world on a microscopic level I couldn’t see,

Something unburies the truth in my human




Wait, you will never return to this place? 

But it replied “till death do us part sweetheart”
